5g Enabled Iphone 12 Will Boost Apple Fortunes

 Everyone is excited about 5G and even Apple knows it cannot afford to lag behind other manufacturers when it comes to 5G enabled devices. Dan Ives, an analyst at Wedbush, feels that 5G enabled iPhone 12 can give a big boost to the sales of iPhones around the world. Talking to CNBC on Monday, Dan said he expected Apple stock to jump 25% from its present levels and reach a mark of $350. Apple stock has risen by almost 79% in 2019. Dan believes iPhone support to 5G in 2020 is what the company needs for a super cycle.


According to Dan, the best way for Apple to realize this ambitious target is to release at least four 5G enabled iPhones this year. The company also needs to make its network strong all over the country. Lower latency and faster data speeds are the prerequisites for the success of 5G enabled iPhones, feels Dan Ives.

5G iPhones have the potential to revive the fortunes of the company that is grappling with the scenario of plummeting sales. One big reason behind falling sales is the fact that vast majority of older iPhones tend to hold on to their models for a very long time. In a survey carried out recently, nearly 23% of the 1000 owners of iPhones said they would upgrade to the new 5G iPhone. This is when there are rumors that 5G iPhone would be priced around $1200.

This survey indicates a growing iPhone 5G support among the customers as only 18% of current owners had indicated their willingness to upgrade to 5G iPhone a few months earlier.

Not all experts share the kind of enthusiasm that Dan has for 5G iPhones. Gene Minster, the MD of Loup Ventures feels that investors should be wary of Apple’s plans to roll out 5G enabled iPhones. He says that though it is a massive opportunity, it is going to take a while for 5G networks to roll out in all parts of the country. In such a scenario, owners of 5G iPhones will not experience the fast speeds that are being promised to them. He added that lack of 5G availability in some parts of the country will hamper with the sales growth that Apple is expecting in 2020.

However, Dan does not agree with the naysayers. He is predicting a sale of nearly 200 million 5G iPhones and says that it will only be a starting point as there will be another 350 million owners of older iPhones ready for an upgrade. Therefore, sales of the new 5G iPhones will continue unabated for a long time beyond 2020 and 2021.

New Year has started and there are already rumors doing rounds that iPhone 12 series will include an assortment of 4G and 5G devices. Customers will get first 5G iPhone in 2020 and it is expected to open the floodgates for a slew of 5G enabled Apple devices in the future.

Given the fact that Apple is behind other companies in the manufacture of 5G smartphones, only time will tell whether the predictions of Dan Ives come true this year.
